Meeting of Generations - Maracatu Rural in Pernambuco

One of the strongest and most significant crops in the State of Pernambuco - Brazil. In these captures there is the gathering of generations, two generations that make the Rural Maracatu a strong and permanent culture, being a folkloric manifestation that creates characters and owns a unique and engaging rhythm. is a secular heritage, a source of great pride and admiration. It is formed by simple people, mainly by rural workers who with the same hands that cut cane, plow the earth and carry weight, also embroider caboclo’s collars, cut fantasies, guitars, garnets and hats; dedicating themselves to the most valuable asset they have: culture.
